Sa’u pleased with Salford’s progression in 2016

Salford star Junior Sa’u believes the club is on the right track despite their recent form.

The New Zealand international has been with the Red Devils since 2014, in which time the Red Devils have finished 10th and 11th in Super League.

Currently, the Red Devils occupy tenth place in the league this year, however they would be in the top eight if they hadn’t been deducted six points for salary cap breaches.

Despite the upcoming appeal, Sa’u believes the club has made great progression both on and off the field.

“If you compare us to last year, we’re competing against the top teams and taking them to the edge, whereas last year we didn’t have that. We have a good bunch of boys and our new trainer, Greg Brown, has put in the effort with the boys, we just need to turn up from the get go.

“What people say out of the group is out of our hands, but we have control of our performances in training. If we tick all the small boxes leading up to games then we’ll get the results.”

The Red Devils are currently on a three-game losing streak, a run that looks set to cost them a top eight spot unless they are rewarded the six points they lost earlier in the year.

Putting that to one side, Sa’u has demanded the team come together to turn around their run of form.

“We can’t afford to have one person off. We need everyone from one to 17 to turn up. We need to turn up with the right attitude.

“We know what we need to do as individuals. What we need to do is go back to the drawing board and work hard for each other.”
